Coffee Colored Tea
Tea Leaves Cardigan by Melissa LaBarre
Me, of course
Needles & yarn
US 7 - 4.5 mm
Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted
8 skeins = 880.0 yards (804.7 meters), 400 grams

I followed the notes on LooseEnds’ tea leaves almost exactly, and especially the short rows in the yoke. I wanted the cuffs of the sleeves to be a little more snug, so I decreased 4 stitches before I began the garter stitch.

I also knit the button band while working on the sweater, but should have made it a couple of stitches wider.

It ended up being a little larger than I expected, to my surprise.
